Most treatments are designed to kill or remove the cancerous cells and eventually removing from the patient’s body so that they do not multiply. Other treatments are based on the defence mechanism of the patient. Here we will discuss two types of cancers Lung cancer and Gi cancer.
Know about Lung Cancer Treatment
Lung cancer is the cancer of lungs. Chest is the location of the lungs so when you breathe air goes through nose down through trachea and then through windpipe and into lungs. This spread through a tube known as bronchi. The cancer begins through the cells which line the tubes. Like any other cancers lung cancers results from the irregularity in the basic unit of life which is human cell. Normally our body checks the function of different parts and maintains a balance on the growth of the cells so that they can divide to form new cells.
Normally lung cancer is of two types
* Small cell lung cancer: It makes up about 20 percent of cases
* Non-small lung cancer: This is the most common type of lung cancer
Sometimes the cancer can start in any part of the body and then spread to the lungs then it is known as metastatic cancer.

Normally cigarette smoking leads to lung cancer. The earlier you started smoking or the number of cigarette you smoke increases the risk of this cancer. Lung can also occur in people that have never smoked.
Today there are different kinds of lung cancer treatment option. The most common are chemotherapy, radiation and surgical section.
